FAO launches an exhibition hall in Lomé to promote made-in-Togo agricultural products

(Togo First) - On the world food day, the FAO inaugurated an exhibition hall in Lomé to display fresh agricultural products.

Located near the headquarters of the Central Bank of West African States (BCEAO), this hall will help boost the visibility of "made in Togo" products, especially fruits and vegetables (mangoes, cabbage, pepper, cucumber, etc.)

"The vitrine for food products benefits farmers, especially those growing organic products, spices, as well as goods processed and preserved in line with health and safety standards," said the new Minister of agriculture, Antoine Lekpa Gbégbéni.

Let’s note that a similar hall was opened in the country three years ago. Also, the government announced that this month, it would release a national strategy aimed at promoting local products.
